"Have you ever watched yourself ..."

"Have you ever watched yourself poop?" an acquaintance of mine asked me last night.

"Um, no. I mean, what? I don't understand the question?" I ask, even though I don't know why I'm asking, because no matter how she meant that question, my answer is still no."

"Have you ever watched yourself poop? Like in the mirror." she explains.

"Like watching what your face looks like?" Why I'm still asking for further explanation is beyond me.

"No. Putting a mirror ~under~ you to watch." Which drives her question home without needing anymore explanation.

"Heh. No." I try to say without laughing. But I have to ask now, and really, I do ~not~ want to know, but I hear me say "Have you?"

"Yeah, it's really gross."

"Yeah, I'd imagine. So how bout them red sox?"

The above exchange was a real conversation I had yesterday. I swear, I couldn't make stuff like this up.

I just snorted a little water up my nose.
WTF? Even more than why one would want to watch themselves poop, who goes and asks other people if they do it!?

I've watched plenty of people poop as a nurse, but I must say it has NEVER sparked a fascination to watch myself do it.

LOL that is so gross! however, my 2.5 year old is currently potty training and will poop on the potty no problems! what grosses me out about it is she spreads her legs open wide and then watches to see what comes out. to say it drives me bonkers is an understatement! i ask her why and the response is always, "because i want to"

I sometimes have insecurities about my self thinking I'm just to weird for people, I now have no worries =D j/k

Ever watch the Truman Show? Reminds me when he's talking about sanity and the difference between people who think stuff, and the ones who act upon what they think. Kind of funny really, not the watching your self poop part, but the fact that she said what was on her mind (or him);)

Io said...

What? You're not lame. I like jokes.

The whole waiting thing is crap man. Patience is way overrated.

Thanks for the laugh!

Topcat said...

I HAVE watched myself poop!!

Heh heh.

True! I was a kid though, so that's my excuse. It actually scared me.

Nancy, please please tell me your Aussie guy called Monkey who broke your heart story! One day when you can't think of anything to post, just post it. (And, if you ever did come to Sydney, you would LOVE the inner city suburb of Newtown. Totally you.)

Nice 16 week belly pic!!! xoxoxox

Isn't it pretty to think so said...

Denise said...

HaHa!!! I can honestly say I've never had that particular conversation before and I've never watched myself poop!

Jennifer said...

I don't know how you didn't laugh at her!

Here's one...
My MIL went on a date with an Italian guy that she had been talking to online and on the phone. She said the date did not last long because he asked her if she had ever eaten crap and if she'd be willing to try it. She says he was serious and when she left he said "that's what's wrong with you Americans. You are too close minded."

Samantha said...

Okay... Am I the only one who cannot even picture in my mind HOW she pulled this feat off? And by watching, what exactly did she mean? Are we taling 'Fried Green Tomatoes"... and OMG GROSS! or the potty training thing?

Either way.... Ew, ew, ew.
